It’s time for Dineout Vancouver again. I love this time of year. Many of the restaurants in the city get together and offer a fixed price menu ($15, $25 or $35) of the Chef’s choice.
From my experience, the best value is in the $15 and $35 menus. The
$25 places tend to have average food, at an average price (maybe a 15%
discount at best). That said, Feeneys did look interesting from the
$25 menu, and I happen to know that each entree there is about $20-25,
so you get an appy and dessert comp.
We tried getting a seat at Feeney’s big brother, Lumiere, but nothing doing. We called as soon as Lumiere opened on the first day of Dine Out and they were already sold out. Maybe I should call and make reservations for next year now….
We went through the complete list and shortlisted down to the following places. The ones with the *s are the ones we’ve been to before and liked. We’ve already been to Raincity – it was pretty good, but not as spectacular as last year. If you’re thinking of going this year, you might want to take another look at some other restaurants. I think we all gave it a 7 of 10.
I’m going to the Heather this weekend, and Nyala next Friday around 8. I’ll probably do two more places from the below list, but I’m not too sure where just yet.
